Demographics are changing the face of fiduciary litigation.  Baby Boomers are retiring with more wealth – and more complicated family situations – than earlier generations. This wealth and demographic complexity is generating more fiduciary litigation, often centering on family or other closely held businesses, whether certain trust interests are part of a martial estate subject to divorce proceedings, and the modification of trusts.  There are significant case law and other developments in these and other areas. This program will provide you with a practical guide to significant developments in trust and estate litigation.
